Long time, no updates. It’s been a busy stretch of time, and I’m still wrangling with settling in. It’s a different kind of cold here in Montreal, a different scale of chill; the “dry heat” effect applies to cold air VERY muchly so.
I find that I tolerate far colder temps here in Montreal than I would back home in Vancouver, BC, where the extra moisture does a great job of leeching the heat from your very bones.
I am making inroads to shaking off the rust from my painting, so I did this sketch-portrait. One bonus of the severe cold, is I can dress like this in public.
